Please join AIA|DC’s Technology Committee for a half-day interactive introduction to Arduino and Firefly. During this program, the presenter will focus on physical computing devices that impact the profession of architecture and will investigate the infrastructure that makes them possible. Participants will then begin to build their own prototypes under the guidance of the instructor.
A basic understanding of Rhinoceros and Grasshopper is helpful, but not required. Arduino software is required for this seminar. To purchase a starter pack, please click here.
